Resigned because made Bulgaria the hand of Putin in EU(Was block eu and nato enlargement, was refuse to join eurozone, was promote Putin's energy plans) and for this reason lost the support from West and EU not was accept Bulgaria in Schengen.

Without international support, was enough only one protest of people, to fall the government.

I can't comment on Putin and Borisov but wasn't GERB against the new nuclear plant ? It wasn't that they were against nuclear power but rather they didn't think it was the best value for money having the Russians build the plant with old technology.
Bulgaria still has the support of the west. They were supported by US during the Bush adminstration but for Obama eastern Europe is too "free" in some aspects.
Bulgarians can travel to all western European countries and even work there (my wife's cousin is in the UK.) You still need a visa for the UK so they can check on who is going in. The Schengen bit was back a few years ago and was in response to the credit card fraud that was being run by Bulgarians and Romanians.
I think the resignation of GERB was more a political move than anything else. The crisis of high electricity rates, although bad enough was nothing in comparison to the BSP (БС&#1 055;)resignation after crashing the banks through outright theft.
You can only hope that things will change but it is difficult as GERB, BSP, CDC and other parties seem different but the corruption is all the same.

Not thinking much Bulgar make stupid move somewhat regrettable on account of GERB. Do you know why peoples protesting? Is good question! I am asking BSP/CDC for answer. Another good question: Who put the plov in bag? Who put ram in the ramma lamma ding dong? Bulgaria! You may ask "What is the position in Bulgaria?" Always the answer is: Missionary. Is good position.
